Bayern Munich legend and current chairman Karl-Heinz Rumminegge has described Mohamed Salah as the Lionel Messi of Africa.
The 28-year-old has been in blistering form since he teamed up with Jurgen Klopp’s men in the summer of 2017 from Italian side AS Roma.
The fine performances have won the Egypt international a number of accolades, including winning the PFA Player of the Year and Premier League Player of the Season awards.
The fleet-forward also scooped the Premier League Golden Boot prize in the 2017-18 season and in the 2018-19 campaign, he emerged as the joint-winner of the award.
Salah also won the African Player of the Year award on two occasions, in 2017 and 2018 following his terrific form for Liverpool and Egypt.
Rumminegge has praised the contribution of the forward and likened it to that of Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“In my opinion, Salah is the Messi of Africa and of course he got the skills to play in the best teams in the world,” Rumminegge told ON Time Sports, as per Kingfut.
“What he [Salah] has achieved can be compared to what Messi and Ronaldo did with Barcelona and Real Madrid.”
